This film illustrates that conflicts and experiences we have as kids help build healthier and richer personalities as adults. So fight early and fight often. Films like these helped define to students what was considered normal behavior.

Except @ 10:48, you'll find that you can apparently diagnose a mental problem by looking in someone's ear with an otoscope. "Yup. You're nuts. I'm referring you to a psychiatrist..."
At the end it actually admits that this trip down "emotion alley" was pretty pointless.

I wish MY parents had seen this.
Frankly, not too bad for the time.

A basic film showing how emtions effect our personality. Good, but nothing outstanding.

When Classical Violinists attack
This is a film about emotions and how different people respond to them, from young and old, emotionally fragile to stable, etc etc. While the message is quite clear, I didnÂt find this film to be that interesting, even though it has many screaming kids in it, and some hammy overacting. I guess the subject is sort of shoulder shrugging to me.

LOL! I'm still laughing out-loud at about 1:05 when the guy grabs the little kid and hits him with a pipe to steal his violin. CLASSIC STUFF...

Those Naughty Feelings!
This film uses lots of stock footage from other social guidance films and lots of Freudian psychobabble to try to explain the complex subject of emotions and how they function in a healthy personality. My guess is that the teenaged audience it was intended for was probably baffled by the film, which tries to jam too much information and too many big words into its short running time. It simultaneously gives you the sense that emotions are complex and fraught with peril and that any emotional problem can easily be solved by following a few simple rules (though it leaves the specifics of those rules to other films). It contains a wonderfully cheesy animated graphic image of how emotions supposedly affect the body and a glimpse of a bizarre square ice cream cone that I would like to know more about.
